George Thomas Waters of Worcestershire

George Thomas Waters was Ari’s 3x great-grandfather, born in 1856 in Kempsey, Worcestershire and baptised on 23 March at St Peter the Great, in Worcester.

Looking towards the Malvern Hills


In the 1861 census we can see him age five and a ‘scholar’, living in Grafton Flyford. He is the third child of William and Emma, who went on to have thirteen children altogether. He has three little sisters, Mercy (4), Martha (1), Mary Elizabeth (five months), an older sister Sarah Ann (7), and a brother William John who is already a ‘carter’s boy’ at nine.

The 1871 census for him still needs to be found (he was not living at home, and I’m guessing he was working on a farm somewhere).

George married Mary James on 20 Apr 1879 in Grafton Flyford, and in 1881 they are living in Himbleton village and he is working as an agricultural labourer. They have a baby daughter, Martha James Waters.

By 1891 George is a farm labourer in Neight Hill, Himbleton, and they have six children.

In 1901 he is a carter on a farm and three more children have been born. Here is his 1911 census entry, showing that one child had died.

George died in 1930 at the age of 74. I will try to find where he is buried.
